Dancing With The Stars – Jan You Need To Get Over It

Jan Stephenson has been quite shattered to be eliminated from Dancing With The Stars.

She thought that since Australia got behind Brynne Edelsten who is American, that Australia would get behind her. Jan is Australian but lives in the US.

She told the Herald Sun:

Proud Aussie Stephenson, 59, said she was “shocked” by the lack of support.

“I saw how much Australia supported Brynne and I thought surely they will support me, I am Australian,” Stephenson said.

“I just assumed Australia would be behind me.

“I don’t want to criticise other people, but they (the voters) are behind Americans and not Australians.”

I really don’t get her logic that we shouldn’t be voting for Brynne because she is American. Jan has lived mainly over there for 30 years. Also Brynne lives here, and is great TV, and also she appears very sweet.

Such a sore loser !!!! Voters vote for their favourite contestants. There are still 10 contestants left and she is not top on the list. Brynne has her husband and his $ to vote for her. Why didn’t she feel sorry for Nathan being voted out last week. Nathan played for Australia ( she played for herself) and Nathan is a true Aussie.

Ah, Ben, you beat me to it.

Jan WHO? Time to go back to the US.

Excuse my general ignorance but shouldn’t, for authenticity’s sake, your average female golfer on the pro circuit be dancing with another girl?
D-grade Dance School should set about challenging it’s predominantly “unsophisticated” old-timer, rural & regional demo and have a couple of D-grade blokes dance with each other (perhaps Ian Roberts could be invited back*, but this time he’s sure to have more swing in his thing) and some try-hard “celeb” lessies to go toe-to-toe (they shouldn’t to hard to find as every day on there’s pics of some faux les popstars going the pash at some swanky niteclub).
* or am I confusing this with some other show the rugby league legend has appeared on?

Uh, Jan? It’s a DANCE competition? You danced badly, hence your removal.

And if you want to compare yourself to Brynne – for starters, Brynne lives here, you live in America. And then, Brynne got the sympathy vote from a lot of people after the rudeness of the judges and Sonia in the first episode. And of course, Brynne is married to a sleazy old turd who is prepared to spend a large portion of his persquillions on keeping her in.

And, while you were a star in your day, that day has long gone. I remember you well, but only cos I’m like, ruly old.

So to sum up, Jan, f*ck off, and stop yer whingeing.
